Janella Purcell is passionate about good food and feeling great! Her new book Eating for the Seasons is a stunningly yummy cookbook filled with gorgeous photographs and delicious, easy recipes. The key to her recipes is that they also promote healthy eating, emphasising what we should be eating in each season and the sorts of foods our bodies need to remain healthy and strong.
The recipes will take you from breakfast through to dessert, with drinks and dressings in between, for each season of the year. Janella also shares with us her 'principles of good food', how the cooking of her Lebanese mother and grandmother influenced her passion for food and how her own health and weight issues led her to study naturopathy and nutrition. She introduces elements of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as the Japanese macrobiotic diet, and tells us about the body organ that is most sensitive and the emotion associated to each part of the year.
This book will also greatly appeal to the growing number of people looking for dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and pescetarian recipes.

Her first book is the award-winning Janella Purcell's Elixir, which shows us how to use food as medicine.
